Relentlessly steep and loose trail taking you from the bottom of Ward Canyon up to Stanford Rock. Most of the trail is a closed fireroad turned single track that demands the tallest gear you have if you want to stay in the saddle. Rerouted and improved in 2016 by TAMBA, the singletrack portion connecting to the TRT offers a fun, windy reward with a well-built rock garden section.
